"Home is where the heart" is or so the saying goes and these altruistic housing projects take that message and spin it into a successful business initiative.

This Social Business top list is full of range. For instance, there is WorldHaus, a social enterprise that works with the rural poor in order to deliver safe, low-income housing for people all around the globe. And then there's 'Brokers for Charity' which is a real estate firm that donates 10 percent of commissions toward various charities.

The United States housing bubble has changed up the way a lot of people relate toward not only the housing industry, but also just home in general. What should a home look like? How can folks design a community to their liking? Can you have control over that? Well, some of these innovations featured here as altruistic housing projects aim to do just that.
